Re: Companionway Hatch Slides Tight?

Where's the rub? If you stand under the hatch and push up from the center does the whole sliding hatch have room to move straight up? If there' plenty of room, then you may do well to put sometihng slick under the worn runners of the hatch. I improved my old slide that had worn dowm to the point where the hatch was riding low by putting two long polycarbonate strips under the hatch on each runner. These, waxed, gave me great improvement.
